Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
4
Job Duties:
To perform various duties associated with the production of organic tobacco, small grains, fruit & vegetables such as greenhouse preparation, cultivating, preparing rows for planting, planting, fertilizing, harvesting, spraying, irrigating, loading & unloading of tobacco bales of up to 800lbs, delivery of product to market, tractor driving, & general farm work. Job involves stooping, lifting and working outside in inclement weather & outdoor temps below 30 to in excess of 100 degrees. Raises and/or bonuses may be offered to any seasonal worker employed pursuant to this job order, at the company's sole discretion, based on individual factors including work performance, skill, and tenure. Must have legal authority to work in the US. Must be able to lift & carry up to 75lbs. Workers may be required to take random, post-accident, and/or upon suspicion drug test at no cost to worker, post hire. Testing positive or failure to comply may result in immediate termination from employment. Must have three months positive verifiable prior experience in job offered. General Conditions Applicable to All Crops: Work begins at an assigned time shortly after daylight. Work is performed under various weather conditions. Workers will work and perform repetitive tasks on their feet in bent and stooped positions for long periods of time pulling mature leaves from the tobacco plants that are from two (2) to ten (10) inches from the ground. Workers will use muscles to lift, push, pull, or carry heavy objects in loading and unloading trucks. Workers may drive trucks to haul crops, supplies, tools, or farm workers.All of the tasks in this job description constitute one (1) job; the employer may assign workers to different tasks on any day or to multiple tasks during the same day in the sole judgment of the employer. Workers may be required to perform work on the farm that is incidental to producing the crops such as performing hand weeding or hoeing, greenhouse/equipment/vehicle cleaning and repairing buildings, maintaining grounds, operate tractor/farm equipment, incidental crop setup when needed, and movement of irrigation systems and equipment, gardening, cleaning around ponds & fields with bush axe and/or sling blade to clear right of ways for machinery to enter work zones, etc. Cover crops of soybeans, rye, or wheat are sewn after tobacco harvest to prepare the soil for next years production of tobacco. This is a very demanding and competitive business in which quality specifications must be rigorously adhered to. Sloppy work cannot and will not be tolerated. Workers should expect occasional periods of little or no work due to weather, crop, or other conditions beyond the control of the employer. This can occur anytime throughout the season. As a general matter, working hours will be divided between duties related to tobacco, vegetables, soybeans, wheat, rye and general farm work depending on the employers needs. Given that the demands of agricultural production are unpredictable and determined by factors to include weather, crop conditions, market demands and seasonal task needs and numerous other factors, it is impossible to predict with any degree of accuracy the percentage of time that will be dedicated to any specific task. If an updated AEWR for the occupational classification and geographic area is published in the Federal Register during the work contract, and the updated AEWR is lower than the rate guaranteed on the job order, the employer must continue to pay at least the rate guaranteed on the job order.
